"Teddy is loafing around!"
―Emile quoting the game message in a funny voice, when Truant is activated[src]

Teddy is Emile's Slaking in his Let's Play of Pokémon Emerald. Teddy was the third Pokémon to join Emile's team. Teddy, along with the rest of the Emerald team, was later transferred to Pokémon Platinum through the Pal Park. No, he is not a Teddiursa.

She is named after one of Chugga's cats, Teddy. Teddy the Cat was named after Teddy from Mother.

YouTuber Darkness1049, a1joryj, and others tried requesting Teddy's name to be Bread as a pun for, "Bread is loafing around." However, they failed and Teddy was chosen instead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A catchphrase that involved Teddy was when Teddy loafed around every other turn due to her ability Truant, Chuggaaconroy would often say "Teddy is loafing around!" in a silly voice.
  • Teddy was named after Chugga's cat, Teddy, who is named after the character Teddy from Mother.
    • Teddy has sadly passed away during the production of the Platinum Let's Play.
  • Chugga caught Slakoth as a challenge for the Let's Play due to Slakoth being weak and its ability Truant.
  • Slaking is Emile's only team member that has a Base Stat Total of 670.
  • Slaking is Emile's first team member to have a hindering ability.
  • Chugga considered renaming Teddy because the fact that his cat, Teddy, is male while his Pokémon Teddy was female was bothering him.
  • Whenever Chugga used Hyper Beam after Episode 36, he would yell, "NOSE LASER!"
  • Chugga used his PP ups on Teddy's Hyper Beam to reach 8 Power Points, and equipped Teddy a Silk Scarf to even further increase Hyper Beam's power by 10%. Between STAB and 10% boost from Silk Scarf, it reaches to 247.5 Base Power.
  • Despite that Hyper Beam is terrible in that one must have to spent a turn to recharge, Chugga abuses the shift battle style after KOing something at full health that is not a Rock, Steel, or Ghost Type. In addition, Hyper Beam at the time was Physical before Diamond and Pearl where it became a Special move.
    • Rock and Steel Type Pokemon resist Normal-type moves like Hyper Beam, while Ghost Types are outright immune to it (an immunity that goes the other way as well, Ghost-type moves being unable to harm Normal-type Pokemon like Teddy).
    • Emile did gave Teddy Brick Break to deal with Rock and Steel types. However, Teddy has no way to deal with Ghost Types since Fighting also does nothing to Ghost.
  • The first time Chugga used Hyper Beam, he yelled, "IMAFIREINMAHLAZAH!", an old joke from the past.
  • It took him over 30 minutes to find Teddy at Petalburg Woods, despite having a 5% encounter rate.
  • At first he thought he might regret using Teddy, but in the end he enjoyed it.
  • In the Gym battle vs. Wattson, Teddy won against Wattson's Voltorb and Manectric but didn't actually cause the knockout either time (Voltorb used Self-Destruct and Manectric fell to an earlier burn). This marks the only time one of Chugga's members has been the victor of multiple matches in one Gym battle without getting a true KO.
  • Teddy, along with Emile's other Pokemon from Emerald, has been migrated to his Platinum Let's Play file.
